MINI Drivers Get Billboards With Messages Aimed at Them, Lands at #6 in Our Best of Print & Design

Digital Activation by Iris Uses Software that Recognizes MINIs

BMW-owned Mini is celebrating its customers with an outdoor campaign that aims to bring the Mini-owning community together with a campaign by iris.

As they pass digital screens along one of London's main roads, Mini drivers find simple, fun content aimed directly at themselves. Messages such as "Hey Cream Mini, what's your secret?" and ""Hello blue Mini driver," flash up on giant screens, thanks to software that recognizes the Minis as they drive by, along witha team of "spotters" who had to pass a test to prove they could see and name a make of a MINI from 50 paces.

At gas stations along the way, Mini drivers are offered treats -- bacon sandwiches or smoothies in the morning, and a tank of fuel or bunch of flowers on the journey home. Drivers can also choose to have their photo taken and displayed with a bespoke message as they approach the digital poster sites. The push is part of Mini's "Not Normal" campaign, which celebrates the individuality of Mini drivers.
